Laurence manages to silence rooms with his mixture of ominous lyrics, creaking slow-motion guitar and a hint of violence. - New Folk Review

this is haunting, intense, spectral folk but with a distinctly British sound⦠Laurence Collyer's diamond family archive is a unique, revolving ensemble, centering around his ghostly, deeply emotive songwriting. imagine Mark Kozelek's haunting folk with elements of Robert Wyatts heart wrenching vocals combined with Collyer's beautiful songs this is a truly great disc - Rough Trade

A true highlight from this years home game! - Fence records

Strange and tender songs built around layered loops of live guitar, lap steel and electronica. Leftfield, oddball and gorgeous, a beautiful and fragile noise and sublime lo-fi melancholia - Stolen Recordings

Laurence's odd, personal lyrical observations beguile and bewilder. Music rarely comes more atmospheric than this. the diamond family archive; if you have yet to see them, prepare to be stunned. - The Gilded Palace Of Sin

This is his first release on Electronic Musik
